Who's going to upgrade to the V50?

I love the V30. I contemplated the V40, but it doesn't seem to be an upgrade from the V30 at all. Especially all the negative things I've heard about the battery life. A 4000MAH battery in a phone like this would be great which the V50 is supposedly going to have. I'd much rather upgrade to a phone that's worth it though like the V50. Only things that I'm really not a fan of at all is the fact that it's 5G and I hope it doesn't have that all screen speaker like the G8 has. that thing sounds awful. My V30 sounds better then that. Hopefully maybe if the V50 is not too ridiculously priced at launch I can trade in my V30 for a decent deal.

I'd love this on the V50 or in any kind of LG device soon to come
Large screen like the size of the V30 or V40
128 GB of storage
6-8 GB of RAM
Either one or two really loud bottom firing speakers
NO 5G, just 4G LTE or the ability to turn the 5G off.
4000 Mah or bigger battery
NOT 1000 dollars at launch. 700-800 dollars is the most I will pay for a phone. Beyond that is absurd.
Preferably no notch, but as long as you can hide it, not a dealbreaker for me

I will be coming from a Galaxy S9+. I absolutely hate the curved screens on phones. My only concern is a matching LG watch to go with it. I hear the current one has actual physical watch hands.

I wasn't going to, because I just got the V40 in November, but got an offer that basically offsets the lease buyout with savings. If they hadn't moved all the buttons, I wouldn't even need a new case.

Man this sub-forum is dead! Starting to feel like I'm the only one that has one (though I see one or two others in a thread somewhere, maybe even here..)

I'm not much of a writer, but I can try to put something together. The quick summary is that it seems nearly the same as the V40 (I realize that doesn't mean much to anyone that never used a V40) but with 5G and Android 9 (which is only now starting to roll out to the V40 on some carriers. My V40 was still on 8.1). I want to try to recreate some of the photos I took with the V40 for comparison purposes.

Thanks. There's virtually no real-user info out there. I don't have much faith in most of the
"professional" reviewers; most of them don't have the same priorities that I have.

I unfortunately am not going for the V50, ordered a Note 10+, 256gb.
The price difference on Verizon's payment plan was only 4 dollars different. I am not 100% happy with the Note 10 but they now have a wide angle camera and the current reviews say their better than the V50.

I may be back to LG as Samsung is removing stuff from the Note series.

Thanks all for the information here!
